An egg and an apple build competing broadcast towers that vie for the attention of a transistor radio. With its complex characterization and narrative of animal evolution, competition and reproduction, 'Seed' is a beautiful and sinister stop-motion story about the struggle to survive. Directed and animated by Ben Richardson and Daniel Bird.

'Seed' is nothing short of a masterpiece. It has the aesthetic of Jan Svankmajer, one of my favourite film makers, which isn't at all surprising seeing as Daniel worked for him as a model maker and animator.
